Body: MDF (particle board)

Neck: Maple neck with a medium “C” profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, rosewood fretboard, 20” radius, and dot inlays

Pickups/Hardware: Kluson-Deluxe tuners, three single-coil lipstick pickups (rated at 3.3kOhms in the neck and bridge, and 3.1k in the middle), three-way pickup selector switch, indepednent volume and tone controls (original pickups, fully replaced wiring harness with three concentric pots for volume and tone control of each pickup.)

Cosmetic Condition: The U-3 was only made during the year of 1958 and this one is a fine example of this rare Dano! The top is in nice shape for its age with mostly minor scuffs and wear in the finish as well as a couple of small cracks in the pickguard that do not affect the stability of the guard. The silver tape binding around the sides is in good shape with only minor dings here and there. The back has a fair amount of wear in the finish but no structural damage to be found. The neck and headstock are both in great shape with only very light blemishes here and there. This U-3 has held up great and is a perfect addition to any vintage Danelectro collection!

Playability: The strings are nice and low, play great, and ring out across the board with minimal string buzz. There are painted on patterns on the front and back of the body.

Modifications/Repairs: The wiring harness has been completely replaced
